Go Back   VW Forum - VZi, Europe's largest VW, community and sales > Community > Chat/Discussion

Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

You know you're a petrol head when you know your GTi from your GTI and your RS from your elbow XR3

My autocorrect on my phone used to do that ALL THE DAMN TIME.

I've thrown a few phones at the wall over the years.

You know you're a petrolhead when you can't believe anybody has said the 205 1.9 GTI comes with half leather interior and the 1.6 comes with cloth

I remember standing in a scrap yard with my old man, as he pulled the interior out of a smashed up 1.9 for my 1.6 205 GTi.

You know you're a petrol head, when you can tell a genuine Mk2 Golf GTI 16v by the top of the front wings.
